An estate agent dressed similar to Willy Wonka has lost his job after stealing chocolate from a client’s property.
The man, known as George, was found out after Jon Charter set up hidden cameras at his flat in Hoe Street, Walthamstow.
A video showed the estate agent, complete with purple suit, taking a Galaxy bar while carrying out a viewing for people who wanted to rent the flat.
Mr Charter reported George to his boss despite him pleading with the homeowner not to because ‘he had only stolen the confectionary to ease his dizziness and fainting symptoms’.
‘Estate agents are not the most popular of people at the best of times but you’d never expect something like this. It just destroys whatever trust you may have.’ Mr Charter said.
The incident happened on Friday and the agent was from Your Move.
